Indiana Restaurant Owner: As A Christian He Understands Gays, Just Doesn’t Want Them Around
[su_right_ad]A caller to a radio show identified only as “Ryan” says he wants the right to discriminate so as not to make his customers “uncomfortable.” I wonder how, if you’re sitting in a restaurant, you know which gender is preferred by the person at the next table.
[He] said that as a Christian he understands that some people have a different “lifestyle” than him, but he doesn’t want them coming into his place of business and making his customers “uncomfortable.”
The hosts did not let him off easy, asking directly if he has ever discriminated against gay people in his restaurant. “I have discriminated,” he said openly, explaining that he has pretended there was a problem with his kitchen in order to not serve them in the past.
“That makes you feel OK?” Rachel Bogle asked him. “I mean, when you get a bed at night saying, ‘I’ve discriminated against other human beings,’ you feel at ease with that?”
Ryan said he feels fine about it because he believes he should be able to do whatever he wants in his own restaurant. “We don’t want to have this in our place of business, it’s just not right,” he said. But while the caller was happy to share his story, he would not say the name of his restaurant.
